History
Century Rayon was established in 1952 under its founder and present chairman Mr. Basant Kumar Birla and commenced production in 1956 with an initial capacity output of 2000 TPA. However, this was only a humble beginning, as Mr. B. K. Birla had then envisaged a much larger set up that eventually saw fruition through various periodic expansions resulting in the present day total capacity of 25000 TPA. Continuing with the company’s growth, the expansion plans incorporated the establishment of Tyre Yarn & Cord Plant in collaboration with M/s. AKU Holland in 1963 and the Continuous Spun Yarn Plant in collaboration with M/s. Snia Engineering, Italy in 1998. Earlier in 1960, the Caustic Soda Plant was established. Subsequently there has been several capacity additions to existing facilities.

Century Rayon is strategically located 54 Km Northeast of Mumbai, the commercial capital of India that has major air and sea ports. The factory campus is spread over 130 acres land astride Murbad Road on the bank of Ulhas River, a lifeline to any viscose factory.
